Running Mojo: Keeping It Up

By Princess Alana When Princess Laural posted about her recent running slump, my first thought was that she is human!!! I was so proud of her first marathon achievement, her training and dedication. And, Princess Jodi is the most committed and dedicated person I have ever met in my life. These Princesses, to me, make … Continue reading

Running on Vacation

Running on Vacation

Vacations are meant to be a break from schedules and routines, but it doesn’t have to mean a break from running! Run away from life for a week, sure, but don’t run away from your fitness goals. Some of my favourite runs have taken place while on vacation. I know that some people consider exercising on … Continue reading

Introducing Princess Laural

Introducing Princess Laural

Anyone who reguarly reads our blog knows that our training for the 2013 Princess Half-Marathon changed our lives in many ways. One of the most unexpected gifts of choosing that race at that time was meeting a fellow princess-in-training who lived in a land not too far away from us. Her name is Laural. And … Continue reading

Running Down Memory Lane: 2014 in Review

Happy New Year! First things first, it has been a long while since I have blogged which is so very unlike me. I had a super-charged, intense 2014 racing calendar that started running Coast to Coast with the Tinker Bell Half-Marathon and Glass Slipper Challenge.

2014 Princess Weekend: The Expo

I’m baaaack! Royal status renewed. Coast to Coast medal earned. 3 races, 4 medals and 1 hard-earned glass slipper! Whew. Have you ever noticed that getting ready for a vacation and getting home from a vacation are tiring enough to make you need, well…a vacation? Coming home from Disney tends to mean piles of laundry, an … Continue reading

Ready to Run Like Royalty!

Ready to Run Like Royalty!

In some ways, running the 2013 Princess Half-Marathon feels like yesterday. In other ways, it seems like ages ago. It was my first half-marathon and an epic goal that kept me focused for months. That race, and all of the fanfare that accompanied it, was pure magic. And now here I am, 5 half-marathons later, ready to … Continue reading

Inside Another Mother Runner Party

Inside Another Mother Runner Party

This is the tale of one badass road trip! By now you probably know that we love, love, love the duo behind Another Mother Runner, Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea. I own the books. I wear the gear. I listen to the podcasts. I follow the blog. And I even got to meet them in person at … Continue reading

Lessons Learned on the Way to the Castle

Lessons Learned on the Way to the Castle

What fairy tale is complete without a lesson or moral? Both Princess Jodi and I have experienced so many life lessons this past year.  It must be the fact that I am raising two girls, 4 and 2 years of age (the terrible 2’s and independent 4’s are testing even my patience), and I am approaching a 30-something birthday, … Continue reading

Taking Flight to Earn our Wings!

So how DO you follow up a goal as epic as the Princess Half-Marathon? This race gave us a focus for an entire year and represented running towards healthier, happier versions of ourselves. It was all about girl power and role modeling and chasing a big dream, one step at a time. It was embracing … Continue reading
